Residence Hall

Live, learn, and work towards your dreams while living in historic Le Fer Hall. Completed in 1924, the architecture is old-world French Renaissance. While the look is historic, Le Fer is complete with the modern conveniences of air-conditioning and technology.  Students that live on campus find it easier to engage in the Campus community which often means better grades and a happier student. And, there is the convenience of walking to class, watching a movie on the large screen television in Sullivan Lounge, and having your friends close by when you need help with a class project.
